The partnership is likely to boost DGCX’s market proposition. Having a network provider which is aligned with the exchange and works on constantly optimizing network routes for the benefit of its clients is a must for any exchange, especially in a region which is somewhat challenged when it comes to latency.
The DGCX also now possesses the capability to significantly increase the trading volumes it can handle, playing an important role in the attractiveness of its offering to global financial institutions.
The Chief Technology Officer at DGCX, Basab Banerjee, explained, “We recognised the need for a network partner with the capability to provide both the lowest latencies in the market, as well as an extremely high level of service.”
